Staying True to my word............well not really!!!

I could tell you that I was totally committed to forging forward with my Christmas chores, I could tell you that being the rebellious one that I can be, that I just said to &%$$ with it and stamped my face off, disregarding the fact that I really NEED to be getting things done.

Well neither is the truth... exactly!!! I actually spent some time getting class projects done and had to do a bit of cleaning to ensure that my stampers weren't bitten by the dust bunnies!!!!

I actually started back to work yesterday after a two month healing hiatus................let me tell I was not prepared for the fact that I would be really really tired when I got home............actually I was getting really really tired by 2:00 p.m. when two of my coworkers stopped in for a chat...............they claim they caught me doing a head nod!!! So here I am home after day 2 exhausted and although I may muster up the teeniest bit of strength to stamp, I pulled this card out of the coffers so that I would keep up with my personal commitment to posting regularly (way better than cleaning commitments, to me they are more like New Years Resolutions Pshaw!!!!!).

Anyway, this card was made very quickly with the soon to be retired Winter Bright Scrapbooking kit. You can view it HERE after December 30th, it will no longer be available.I used the SU! Scallop circle as well as Nestabilities Scallop Circles as a base for the main image, which Hails from It's Snow Time which also retires at the end of the month. A little Double Stitched Wasabi Ribbon, A pretty border made with a Martha Stewart Punch and some stickles of course.............did you notice that Stickles and Liquid Applique seem to be a main staple for me these days??? and last but not least a Big Old Juicy Ice Brad complete the wintery look of this card!!!

Stop by again, I hope to have something new cooked up for you!!!!


  1. LOVE this Vicki----gorgeous card. Love liq applique and stickles too!!! must be the season.

    Take care of yourself girl! Don't push too hard.


  2. An adorable and fun card in one of my favorite color combos! Stickles and LA are pretty easy to get hooked on I've found out. Take it easy on yourself, Vicki. Gosh, I come home dragging and I don't even have a good reason. Well, other than that I run my legs off all day.

  3. This is too cute! It's hard to go back to work after the weekend, I can't imagine what it's like after two months. You must have been jonesing for some stampin'.

  4. WOW! This is such a caaa-uuute snowman card! Boy do I love these colors, and the stickles!!

    Be easy on yourself ... it's going to take a bit of adjusting for you to get back to "work-scheduling"! Pull from the "coffers" any time ... your coffers are looking great, of course!


  5. Sweet card Vicki, LOVE the fun colors and layout. Jennifer :)
